Mission Statement

Peace with justice-- for a world restored, thriving and secure, for all, forever.

Pacem in Terris seeks to change attitudes and bring about involvement and actions that lead to positive peaceful change on the local, national and global level. It helps people understand that peace is not just the absence of war and conflict, but a vibrant, thriving, safe, secure and sustainable neighborhood and world-- that peace is a necessity for survival, not a luxury for the affluent.

Pacem in Terris has been on the front lines of the movements for peace, ending racism, anti-apartheid, nuclear freeze, disarmament, peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland, ending the death penalty, stopping gun violence, restorative justice, non-violent conflict resolution, environmental sustainability, global awareness and local action.

Description

Pacem in Terris (Latin for "Peace on Earth") was founded by an interfaith group or clergy, business leaders and academics (Rabbi Herbert Drooz, Rabbi Jacob Kraft, Rev. Albert Nielson, Msgr. Thomas Reese, Richard Rhoads, and Charles Robinson) in Wilmington, Delaware in 1967. For 47 years it has facilitated the active participation of people and organizations on issues and projects relevant to the quest for peace, justice, and sustainability throughout the world. It is an independent, member-supported non-profit organization whose work embodies a creative mix of hope and vision with pragmatic education and positive action.
